Hello everybody, my name is Dan.
Today I have for you another tutorial video
on creating textures using pencils.
So first we need to understand is that
everything that exists has some kind of texture to it.
All these materials and different surfaces
each have their own properties
whether that smooth, roughed, detailed,
可能光滑 粗糙 细腻
the list can go on,
but the appearance of different textures is very important in drawing
Because we have to create representations of all of these things,
so that we can bring the drawing to life
whether the intention is to make the drawing look more realistic
or simply just to suggest what a material and object in the draw might be.
So today we are going to be looking at creating about
three of what is probably the most common textures
which is wood, brick and metal.
So I’ll also put timestamps in the description
for each of the different textures we create.
With that being said, let’s jump straight into the first one.
Now I’ve quickly sketched out three boxes here
where I’ll be drawing the textures.
We are going to start with wood,
probably one of the most common materials out there.
There’s loads of different types of wood with different appearances,
but here I’m going to go for an archetype of texture.
I’m going to start by creating some of these horizontal lines,
and these will be the grain in the wood,
so you see it quite often.
On wooden surfaces this arrangement of grain
that creates this sort of pattern.
This is definitely the priority and the focus
when it comes to drawing a wooden texture.
I’m using a HB pencil here to start off
and then I’ll most likely switch to a 2B later,
and make some areas darker.
It’s probably worth me saying
that you can also change the shade of the texture you are drawing
just by making lighter or darker marks with the pencil.
It’s easier to create darker lines and shades with softer pencils.
So use them if you want to get a darker result,
and likewise if you want a lighter shade of wood,
you can use harder pencils,
and draw more lightly on the paper.
So right now I’m really focusing on drawing these smooth natural-looking lines
for the grain of the wood.
I’m going to speed this up a little bit,
and then we can get on with the next stage.
So now I’m going to start drawing in some smaller lines
in between the ones that we’ve already created.
I’m always drawing these in the same direction as the other ones,
so that it gives a smooth finish rather than a rough appearance.
OK, we’ve drawn in most of these,
and now we have this collection of
what is just all these different pencil lines going in the same direction.
What we need to do now is fill in the white spaces
which is the background more or less.
And to do this, we just lightly sketch over what we have done,
and shade this in.
But always in the same motion and direction as the grains of the wood
that we’ve already created.
And finally once that is done,
you can touch up some areas if needs be.
But that is pretty much the wooden texture finished.
Next step we’re going to be drawing brick
more like a brick wall side of texture.
So I’m trying to cover some of the most popular materials
that will be more useful,
and that you’ll probably use more often.
So first of all, I’m going to lightly sketch in my wall here
with each of the few bricks and the mortar in between them.
So we have now what looks like a basic outline of a wall,
but it doesn’t look realistic, obviously it’s just outlines.
So let’s start by go through
how to create each one of these bricks.
We have a few options here in terms of the results that we want.
For example, if I wanted to create an old weathered brick,
I’d be making more of a rough,
and detailed texture in comparison to
a smoother brick in better condition.
For this I’ll try and do a mixture in between,
so that we can cover both of the techniques.
I’m going to start off by lightly shading on each of the bricks,
just ignoring the marks for now
because we can come back to that later.
Once we have a base layer of shade,
I can start outlining with a sharper,
softer pencil like a 2B.
So right now I could outline each brick
as a straight line like a perfect rectangle,
and it will look like it’s in perfect condition.
But bricks tend to be more weathered,
and have maybe some chips in them,
or some rougher edges.
So here I’m just going to create those
with the outlines you can see that I’m creating
more of a rough sort of style of an edge
instead of that straight box like rectangle.
Once that’s done, start adding some darker shades
over some areas of the bricks,
then finally start to add some small dot-like details to the brick texture,
and maybe even some small finer marks
to really bring out that realistic and weathered appearance.
It’s probably good if each brick looks completely random
and none of them look the same.
There isn’t just one way to go about drawing them,
so you can shade in different areas
compared to the other ones.
So I’m happy with how these appear now,
and I’m going to take a lighter pencil like a 2H
for the mortar that’s in between
because obviously this needs to be lighter than the bricks.
So lightly filling some of this with the pencil,
try to make the mortar that little bit darker
when it’s underneath a brick.
So it appears as if the brick is extruding forward a little bit.
Once we have this basic shading done,
finish off by using a very sharp pencil
and creating those fan dot like marks
the same as we did with the bricks
to create that rough texture.
Now if you need to finish these off,
you can take an eraser,
and carefully erase some of the mortar
above each brick, so again.
It gives that extra three-dimensional effect,
but other than that I think we are pretty much finished
with this brick texture.
So for this last one we are going to be creating a metal texture,
and by the way I will do some more videos
expanding on this subject
that covers more textures,
and also how to apply them onto your drawings as well.
So if this we are going for a smooth,
shiny metal like surface,
now this one’s pretty straightforward.
I’m going to take a light 2H pencil,
and start by shading in this whole area.
Once that’s done I’m going to take a HB pencil,
something that’s just a little bit softer,
and I’m going to create a darker area of shade
in a horizontal direction.
Now we are going to do a bit of blending,
so you can either use a blending stump
or just use your finger, it doesn’t really matter that much.
But lightly blend these areas
until it looks all smoothed out,
try and get that darker area of shade that we created
to really blend an almost fade into the lighter area.
So the next step we are going to take an eraser,
and I recommend using one with a fine edge
like the one I’m using here.
I’ll put the names of all the equipment I’m using in the description.
What we are going to do is start scratching away in that horizontal direction,
you want to pretty much do this all over the drawing,
and trying get the lines that you create with the eraser
as sharp and fine as possible.
Then once that’s done, do the exact same,
but in a diagonal direction,
trying make some of the lines you create longer than others.
So you should end up with something that looks like this.
And depending on how you want your metal surface to appear,
you can always take the eraser again,
and completely remove some areas
to give a shinier effect to it.
But that concludes the drawing of this metal texture,
so there we go,
that was probably three of the most common textures there is to draw.
If you enjoyed the video,
and found it useful, make sure you give it a like.
And I can also do some other videos covering more textures,
and also how to apply them on some examples of other drawings.
So thank you for watching this video,
and I will see you in the next one.
